In children's literature, I seek the reference to a mention of "cod liver oil"?

For a comparative languages project, I need to find this term in children's literature context, if possible the edition and page number ...


@@ amphitryon - thanks a lot; with the quotation you gave, it's all right.

    check out Astrid Lindgren and ''Pippi Longstocking'' (the book) to be more specific. I quote:

    "She had no mother and no father, and that was of course very nice because there was no one to tell her to go to bed just when she was having the most fun, and no one who could make her take cod liver oil when she much preferred caramel candy."

    sorry, can't get my hands on the book right now, to give you a page number. Should be on the web though.
